Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Finally the Ringing Has Stopped

thankful thursday blog hop brian 11082018Once again I’m happy to say welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, we are always delighted to see you! Today it’s time for us to post about things we are thankful for and totay is no exception. We always look forward to reading about all of the things you are thankful for too and we sure love it when we see new blogger pals hopping in to join us!

Today I am so thankful that the ringing has stopped.  During election season it seems like our phone was ringing non-stop.  Just when it stopped it started up again.  The Dad said it was some robot calling us but I didn’t even know we knew any robots.  I’ll bet it was really a bunch of aliens calling to beam us up.  I’ll tell you what, it was sure hard to get a good nap in with that noise.  It wasn’t anywhere as bad as the door bell but it was getting close.  I was about ready to send them a nice big batch of Catnip so they could at least be distracted for a while.

So, let’s all give a shout-out to peace and quiet and hope it lasts for a while.  I know, I know, with Brother Simon and Sister Seal running about it’s not overly quiet, but at least their noise is entertaining.  I hope you all have a wonderfully quiet Thursday.

What are you thankful for today?  Tell me in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    All that phone ringing paid off in WI, hoorah, but I know what you mean, Brian you could barely answer the phone or shut your dreary eyes for a second without a disturbance. Hope the trick-or-treater commotion wasn’t too hard on you guys.

    Yes, thank goodness the elections are over with down in the States. It wrecked our TV viewing as there were ads that went on forever for different politicians we’d never heard of before. Another reason to be thankful. lol

    We can all relax once again.

    Oh we agree, we hate the ringing, and our parents never pick it up. What a waste of time

    I’m sure Brother Simon and Sister Seal’s running around is much preferable to that incessant ringing. If it’s almost as bad as the doorbell, then it’s pretty bad! Looks like you’ve got a nice sunny spot in which to enjoy the quiet.

    Not many campaigns had my human’s phone number, but a bunch had her email and she got, literally, thousands of emails from different campaigns. Did she read any? Oh, maybe one or two. That’s like a .001% open rate, MOL!

    And our house Mom’s phone plays nice mewsic plus she doesn’t answer numbers she doesn’t recognize. Doorbells freak us out so Dad put a sign on our door to prevent strangers from bothering us. We are thankful to have a reasonably quiet home. Except for Rabbit, our baby brofur who causes a lot of chaos.

  8. Comedy Plus

    We too were happy about the phone not ringing all day long. Not to mention all the flyers left at our door. What a wonderful thing to be thankful for.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ♥

    Amen to that! Do they really think they’ll get my vote by interrupting dinner with a robo-call? I’m thankful that there was a good turnout, that people got involved in this election, but I’m even more thankful it is finally over! Our Poor kitties were being driven crazy, which drove us crazy!

    Brian, we feel your pain! And some nasty stuff has shown up on FB, which I don’t understand. But we legalized hippie lettuce, so that’s fairly interesting!
    How are you feeling, Brian? Is your mouth all healed?

    We don’t have a landline, so we were spared most of that. I didn’t mind getting email updates from my representative and senator that were up for reelection – in fact for the first time ever I donated to help them win (they did – especially sweet to see the white nationalist candidate in our state lose. Talk about a reason to feel thankful!). But the commercials on TV were awful, so I get what you’re saying. We can only hope they don’t start the 2020 madness for a few more days 🙁

    Brian, I am thankful for you, your brother and all your sisters and your mom and dad. Really and truly.

    We are glad your ringing…the silly human TV ads…and very thankful other assorted human pawlitical sillyness is over for awhile too!

    xoxo,

    Our mom loves the quiet and hates when the phone rings. We hadn’t realized, but you are right, it hasn’t been ringing as much the last two days. Mom wants to get rid of our land-line, but Dad is balking. She has the ringer turned down as low as it will go. We will add that less phone calls to our thankful list as well. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

    Mom too is thankful the elections are over – the news was nonstop about them. Now of course, we have new things for them to be yakking about, and today’s news was more sad stuff. But we are thankful we have a good home and don’t have to worry about all those human difficulties.

    Enjoy those antics from the young ones – they too will grow up one of these days:)

    that’s how my husband’s phone was lol! We don’t use our landline (we have it unplugged and just keep it for emergencies), so nothing there….I only received a few texts…THANK COD!!

  17. Cathy Keisha

    Whoa! We didn’t get not one phone call but we got some mail telling us who to vote for. Funny, they were all for the party we were voting for. I guess the other party knew we didn’t want them. MOL! Enjoy your rest and be thankful you don’t live in Iowa where the calls will start coming soon for the 2020 election caucuses.

    HAHA…yep I am entertained when Lily has those silly moments when she takes off running and jumping. Cats are so silly sometimes. Hoping you have a great weekend.
